About

Some big pieces for the Mt. Rainier Gondola at Crystal Mountain.
Peter with components for Washington’s first gondola at Crystal Mountain in 2010.

I started skiing at age four at Crystal Mountain near Seattle. From the very beginning I was as interested in the ride up as the sliding down.  When I first heard about the internet around 1997, the website I tried before any other was doppelmayr.com.  After high school, I attended Colby College in Waterville, Maine, earning a B.A. in Government in 2012.  While there, I made sure to ski every operating area in Maine and New Hampshire.  After graduation, I headed west to Wyoming to work in the lift operations department at the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort.  I ski 130+ days a year and you can find me this winter supervising the Sweetwater Gondola team.  You can reach me at Peter@liftblog.com.

    Peter- Great website. Really enjoy it. Just a quick correction, Snowbain Utah, you got the info for Middle Bowl & Wildcat switched around. Wildcat was put in back in 73/74 as a Thiokol Triple and Middle Bowl is a CTEC Triple was put in back in in 79. Pretty much the same lift as the 73/74 Thiokol, with a CTEC Badge :)

    Hey, I love the blog a ton! I’m currently a lift operator on Okemo Mountain in Vermont working my way into a lift mechanic position. I want to get you some pictures to fill out all the lifts on Okemo if you’d like.
